Flying NY to SEA for a one nighter next week - Any creative ideas?

I have to fly NY to SEA for a one-nighter next Tues. I need to get into SEA around noonish and can fly out early AM on Wed. or even late redeye Tues. Naturally, I would prefer to a) fly non-stop and b) fly up front. Song is the redeye to NY so that's not an option I relish. Best fare I can get is around $460 on a non-stop JFK-SEA and SEA-JFK the next morning in HKQ. I would take it but am concerned about actually getting the upgrade (any comments on this).

I have been trying other fare options YB or A but the price jumps big-time. Anyone out there have a good idea or should I just book the direct flight in discounted coach and hope for the best.

Sorry about that. I assure you it was a typo. Thanks for pointing it out.

If you took song it appears you can get that 10,000 mile promo on song (see other thread for details)

Same thought I had here. I had to look twice to see that Dovster did not start this thread.

Is that the story you are sticking with?

Talking to the CRC people in SEA (they were fascinated that I was using a full F ticket for leisure travel!), they said that F rarely goes out full on the SEA-JFK flight.

I was on this flight 7/5...8 F seats open on a 757.

I doubt you'll have a problem.
